When applying for the first round of the #TigerbloodIntern position with Charlie Sheen this summer, Sepy Bazzazi had to finish the following sentence in 75 characters or less; “I’d be a good Social Media Intern because…”. At this point, Sepy didn’t know what to think. “I kind of took it with a grain of salt, and didn’t really know if it was even real. I had no expectation at this point, but I thought it was a pretty cool concept.”, he commented.
Sepy is a 25 year old Vancouverite who works professionally in Social Media for Earls Restaurants’ Corporate HQ (@earlsrestaurant). He is now one of the few Canadian candidates still remaining in the #TigerbloodIntern competition.
“Once I made it to the third round, I posted a screenshot of my acceptance email on my Facebook, and my friends began to comment letting me know that they hadn’t made it. Shortly after I found out that by round three, the race had boiled down to only 250 applicants from an initial 70,000+. This is when I realized that I potentially had a shot at taking this all the way, and decided to get really serious.” said Sepy. For round three, he was asked to submit a two minute video, responding to one of three social media questions. You can find his round three Video Response here: http://youtu.be/UfKylJyqmUo
Good luck Sepy!
